Tsubasa Chronicle

Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle (ツバサ-RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE-) is a shōnen manga series written and illustrated by the manga artist group Clamp. It takes place in the same fictional universe as many of Clamp’s other manga series, most notably xxxHolic. The plot follows how Sakura, the princess of the Kingdom of Clow, loses all her memories and how Syaoran, a young archaeologist who is her childhood friend, goes on a quest to save her. Dimensional Witch Yūko Ichihara instructs him to go with two people, Kurogane and Fai D. Flowright. They search for Sakura’s memories, which were scattered in various worlds in the form as feathers, as gathering them will help save her soul. Tsubasa was conceived when four Clamp artists wanted to create a manga series that connected all their previous works. They took the designs for the main protagonists from their earlier manga called Cardcaptor Sakura. A sequel titled Tsubasa: WoRLD CHRoNiCLE started serialization in 2014.

First of, in case you did not know, CLAMP decided to “recycle” a lot of its characters from Card Captor Sakura and other anime in this show. In essence, you will see a ton of familiar faces, but that’s all they are – faces. For the most part they have completely different personalities and histories. I don’t know if that’s because they ran out of ideas for completely new characters or not, but that’s just the way it is. But don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely not a bad thing. The animation, as usual from CLAMP, is up to par with today’s standards and what today’s viewers expect from an anime. It’s very crisp and clean and very colorful. The relationship between Sakura and Syaoran is something you could shed a tear witnessing the trials they go through, but once again, the slowness of it all prevents a continuous enjoyment of that.
